About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.

I was born in New York City over 64 years ago into a poor Italian-American family. I attended school in New York. And, held a variety of jobs as well as, having been broke on many occasions. I was so broke, I had to go on welfare.
When I had to be photographed like a common criminal for my welfare identification card, I decided that I would never be broke again. So, I went to work to help myself. In other words, I chose life. I got educated!
Eventually, I left New York and went to Law School in Arkansas. That was quite a change! I applied myself and worked hard. In June, 1980 I passed the bar examination as the highest scorer for the entire state of Arkansas.
After law school, I obtained employment in New Jersey. In 1983, I moved to South Jersey and I immediately fell in love with the area.
I worked a tad under 9 years for the Public Defender Office. In 1992, I opened my criminal defense practice in South Jersey.

I am very grateful for the help we got from Mr. DeMarcos. He is absolutely fantastic and did a great job. Always very accessible and a phone call away. He took the time to listen and was very knowledgeable about the issue. I was impressed with him and would highly recommend him and his firm.

R.E.D.
Mr. DeMarco is not only a very good attorney but he is also a very well respected human being. He always keeps you well informed. I went to court and never even had to speak one word and when it was all over the judged not only dismissed the case but he Mr. DeMarco if there was anything else he could do for him. At the end of the day all my worries were over and R.E.D. = R( RESCINDED…EXPUNGED…DISSMISSED) I am forever grateful

The Best Lawyer!
Mr. DeMarco is the absolute best lawyer I could ever hire. I was in a little legal trouble, I looked up lawyers and he had the best reviews. I called him first and hired him on the spot. He was extremely attentive to my anxiety and assured me numerous times I would be okay. My court day came and my charge was dismissed. Any person I know whoever gets in trouble with the law, I will always recommend him. I am truly thankful I found him!

Great Attorney
I am in recovery Mr. Thomas Demarco represented me with skill and compassion and came through with the best results I recommend him to everyone I know. This was a criminal charge and I was facing prison time. Mr. Demarco had my charges reduced I was sentenced to probation and a recovery house. I have known Mr. Demarco since I was in my twenties.

Courteous and speedy
I had charges 3 years old and I’m not from New Jersey he was the first lawyer I called and was helpful from the first moment. Gave me reassurance that nothing was that bad and had everything worked out in a couple days court went very well also! It was my first experience with a lawyer not necessarily the law and he made it such an easy process I would recommend him to anyone.
